After sailing in plenty of frustrating conditions throughout the winter, top women's wave sailor, Evi Tsape (F2, North), headed out in the Korinthian Gulf on 6th March to enjoy a good day of North Westerly wind. However, after less than an hour on the water she was in hospital.


She hasn't told us exactly how it happened, but what we do know is that she ended up with a C2 spinal fracture, which is more commonly known as a 'hangman's fracture' due to it replicating the cracks which occur if you get hanged with a rope! 

Not only was she lucky enough to get back in, but she also tells us that due to her good physical shape, there was no damage to her spinal cord, and all things going well, she should make a full recovery. Tsape is out of hospital now and lying at home, trying to stay as still as possible.
